The Pelicans closed the quarter strong again, outscoring the Lakers 12-3 over the final four minutes to take a 69-57 lead into the break, and Los Angeles never got back within single digits.

The statement came amid heightened tension between the two nuclear-armed arch-rivals after the February 14 suicide attack by Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammad that killed at least 40 CRPF soldiers in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama district.

On Feb. 24, 2019, Marshal Mujahid Anwar Khan, head of the Pakistani Air Force, had said his service was ready to "thwart any misadventure by the enemy", referring to India. We assess that neither India nor Pakistan are eager to escalate military confrontations, and both countries in any case lack the means to achieve a decisive outcome in the disputed Kashmir region. India's first action against Pakistan following the 14 February attack was to withdraw its Most Favoured Nation status targeting two-way bilateral trade, which totalled nearly USD2.2 billion in 2017.

The tweet also called on India and Pakistan "to work to de-escalate the situation".

There are also unconfirmed reports that clashes have erupted on the ground along the Line of Control.
